I just bought this filter through hvstar and I'm a little concerned that its has a faint yellowish tint to it. I was under the impression that it would be totally clear. Now that i've read a little on the subject, some of the UV filters that block more of the UV (i.e., haze filters) can be a little yellowish looking. I want to use this as a protective filter for my Canon 17-85 (on a XTi). Should I have bought a clear protective filter instead? Should I just slap it on or not worry about it? Or should I just use it outside when conditions are a little harsh - like at the beach or in situations with a lot of haze?
I may try some shots with and without and see if there are any color issues. Also, i'll look for any loss in light.
Any other suggestions?
